The British VW ID. Buzz? NEW Morris JE Van review exclusive first drive

Published in Video

New Morris JE Van review | The British VW ID. Buzz? Exclusive first drive. After waiting for four years, Jonny Smith finally gets the world exclusive first drive on the Morris J-E electric van, designed from the ground up using EV drivetrain and recycled carbonfibre body to offer a practical modern van with retro aesthetics. Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show. The Morris J-E has been developed with three battery packs to choose from, offering between 150 and 250 miles of range on one charge. The van takes up a small footprint, but has a larger payload than many existing electric vans (including the Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo), thanks to its light kerbweight (under 1200kg). At £60,000 it isn't going to be a high volume fleet seller, but brands and companies who value the looks and PR possibility, together with zero emission deliveries, may appreciate this unique all-British proposition.
